Abstract: The present case study discusses the implementation of Koha library management software at Biju Patnaik Central Library (BPCL) of the National Institute of Technology Rourkela. The paper describes the process of data migration from proprietary integrated library management software (ILMS) Libsys, implementation of Koha ILMS, integration of RFID devices, impact on existing library user services, and housekeeping operations. The study explores the issues with proprietary products such as vendor locking while migrating the data. The paper could be useful to libraries migrating from existing ILMS to open source solution Koha.
